New Body: HPI RX-8

I started working on a new body.  It will be for the new Eagle Racing TT02 FRD that I am expecting to be released soon.

After trimming it out with a fresh razor blade, I tape up the things that shouldn't get painted.  The window masks that come with the bodies are usually not very good for producing a quality job.  I like to use the green 3M tape that is used for autobody work.  You can cut a nice edge with it, and the paint does not bleed under the edges like most masking tapes do.

I masked off the hood as well.  I plan on simulating carbon fiber using the carpet tape technique.  I will document that process along the way.
